Our basketball team continued their good recent form on Wednesday night, taking down Ramat Efal by 20 points at home, putting us in second place in the Liga Bet standings with a 6-1 record this season.
The game marked a debut for talented big man Nyv Segev, the brother of already-established Inter rotation player Ron Segev, as well as being the final game for American guard Zach Levy.
Ramat Efal has yet to win a game this season so not much was expected of our opposition but they came out to play in the opening quarter and kept the game close in the beginning.
However, by the end of the first quarter, we had begun to find our stride and Jake Pemberton, who led the game in scoring with 26 points, was starting to get hot from three-point range.
There were also contributions from Barak Swarrtz, debutant Nyv and Yona Kadosh with 11, 9 and 6 points respectively. Head Coach AJ Mitnick gave minutes to nearly his entire roster as the team never looked back and kept a double-digit lead for the majority of the game.
Next week we take on Hapoel Yaffo Sky away from home, before a trip down south to Shar HaNegev in the final 8 of the State Cup.
